What happens if you die, and no one knows who you are? An eye-opening film about who has the right to be identified.

Currently, no country takes responsibility for identifying the drowned bodies that, in the thousands, wash up on the shores of the Mediterranean or are recovered from wrecked boats. The handling of unidentified bodies falls under a “policy of indifference.” However, Italian forensic scientist Cristina Cattaneo tirelessly works towards her goal: to identify “Pure Unknowns” – migrants, homeless individuals, and sex workers – and thus, honor a fundamental human right. It is about respect for human dignity and for the surviving loved ones. The film follows Cattaneo in her efforts to advocate for pan-European legislation that gives the unidentified dead the right to their name, regardless of socio-economic status or citizenship . A factual, disturbing, and beautiful portrayal of a forgotten issue.

On March 9, there will be an introduction session before the screening.
